PORTRAITS | Annual Outdoor Mini Christmas Shoot

After last years success with our mini outdoor Christmas shoots, we decided to launch it again for this fall. Our mini sessions consist of 15 to 30 min sessions that all include 25 holiday cards {with the option to purchase more of course} and a holiday photo ornament {great gifts for the grandparents}.

Mini sessions are great for a variety of reasons: you can try out a new photographer, you can come in just for one specific set of photos etc. The great thing is, all the products are discounted! We are pleased to announce that we sold out again with 5 families booking our mini sessions. {yes one of the families was Paul and I – but hey! We need to send holiday cards too!}.

Below are photos from my own family session. As you can see, the photo of the 3 of us isn’t fabulous but I wanted to show that not all photo sessions run smoothly and are perfect.

Next family, meet Andria and Neil. Andria was my wedding planner and now we plan playdates for our kiddos! How adorable is Toddler N – check out those curls!

Meet to Colligan / Wall Family. I met Erin many moons ago while in college at the University of Hartford. We met while we were both in the same sorority {go Phi Mu – #notjust4years} and I have been photographing her family on and off since then. I absolutely LOVE how these photos came out. Their daughter A is the perfect age of wanting to be photographed and good at following directions. Their dog, Chief, was also awesome!

Almost 3 years ago, I photographed Kyle and Kate’s wedding. Fast forward to today, where we photograph them with their beautiful daughter, B. We love when clients think of us for ALL their photo needs! 🙂

I’ve known Kevin and Kayla {aka K2ed as they call themselves}, since 2014 when they booked us to photograph their May 2016 wedding. Since then we have photographed their engagement session, their wedding, provided many pieces of art for the walls in their home and now, maternity photos. Baby Brunelle is set to arrive at in January 2018. K2ed originally wanted to do maternity photos in the fall but the recommended timeframe for maternity photos in 32-36 weeks. So the below photos are taken specifically for holiday cards while they have another maternity session scheduled for this weekend. Stay tuned for those sneak peeks coming soon!

I originally met David and Bridget while second shooting their wedding with my friend Tyna. We kept in touch ever since. How cute are these brothers?!

Below are some photos of me in action {thanks Lauren!}.
